Over the last few weeks, I have become increasingly obsessed with dogs on sweaters. It started with this J.Crew sweater and I couldn't let the idea go until I had one of my own. Unfortunately, I couldn't find one for less than $40. I made this one with less than $10 in materials.
white & red vinyl
fabric paint (I used this style)
small paint brush
needle & thread
I printed off this french bulldog illustration and used it as a guide to cut the shape out of white vinyl (I used 1/8 yard of the cheap vinyl from Walmart's fabric section). I cut the bow tie out of vinyl as well, though it could be painted on. I used fabric paint to add the brown spots and marker to put the eyes, nose, mouth, and outline on. Then I hand sewed the dog onto my top with black thread and then the bow tie with red thread.
What do you think?
